Horse racing days out from Herefordshire
Horse racing days out are ideal if you’re looking for a group day trip that you can travel to by coach or minibus. Live horse racing events are a big part of the British sporting calendar. They’re also the perfect choice of day trip for racing enthusiasts or those looking for a fun day out with friends.
Why not treat yourselves to tickets on Ladies Day if you’re organising a party for the girls or a hen do? Days at the races are very popular for stag parties. You can sort out betting slips, beers and boxes in advance of the groom’s big day.
Or if you have a big family, horse racing trips can be a fun way to spend quality time together. Some racecourses do family fun days and allow under 18s with themed events and entertainment for the little ones.
Where should I go for a team day out?
The variety of hospitality packages and private boxes also mean that days out at the races are ideal for work colleagues and clients. And tailor-made tours can be a great way to entertain customers. Give the races a go for a team bonding trip out or to treat your hardworking employees.
